Richard Aihoshi's New F2P Column

Posted Apr 27, 2009 by Dana Massey

Richard Aihoshi's New F2P Column

MMORPG.com today debuts columns, which are weekly articles from some of the most respected voices in MMOs.

The first columnist is Richard Aihoshi, the veteran MMO reporter and editor of RPG Vault, Aihoshi is one of the most respected authorities on the free to play MMO genre and each Monday he'll contribute his thoughts for the MMORPG.com community.

In his debut column, "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" he explains how he came to focus on this aspect that many mainstream outlets too often neglect.

The fact of the matter is that I spend a lot of time covering the free to play sector because it is important. Very important. However, it tends to be... out of sight, out of mind. The main reason is simple. The amount of exposure that the category receives in the game media isn't nearly on the same level as its significance, neither in terms of the huge numbers of players nor the major amounts of revenue they represent. As a consequence, if you lean on those publications for information, you get little or none about free to play titles.
